Villeroy & Boch
at Marbella Design Fair
IN PREPARATION FOR THE MARBELLA DESIGN FAIR – TO BE HELD IN THE PALACIO DE CONGRESOS IN MARBELLA FROM 4 TO 15 JULY – WE CAUGHT UP WITH VILLEROY & BOCH, ONE OF THE
MAIN EXHIBITORS AT THE EVENT, TO TALK ABOUT THEIR COLLABORATION WITH AWARD-WINNING SPANISH DESIGNER ERICO NAVAZO…
Tell us about the concept behind this space designed for Villeroy & Boch…
Our creative objective has been to devise a hedonistic space, inspired by the Art Deco movement, using a palette of aquamarine and blueish green tones, in contrast to whites and blacks.
What sensations or experience do you want to convey?
We wanted to create a fresh and festive atmosphere for enjoying time in the bathroom, with the intention of transmitting to visitors such pleas-ant sensations as optimism and joy.
What have been your main sources of inspiration?
Pastel colours and a floral and aquatic style that is reminiscent of the swells of the Mediterranean Sea that bathe the Costa del Sol.
What is it that you value most about Villeroy & Boch?
Their commitment to design and quality, in addition to a constant spirit of evolution.
What aspects of the brand (and products) do you most identify with?Its timeless elegance and how it is inspired by tradition.
How would you define a Villeroy & Boch bathroom?
Adaptable, versatile, elegant and top-quality.
What are the leading bathroom trends for 2019?
The use of natural materials such as wood and marble, presented in all their raw splendour and creating well-defined contrasts and silhouettes.
What advice would you offer to readers wanting to optimise the space in their contemporary bathrooms?
Install compact toilets, built-in taps, niches, non-profile screens and good lighting units.
Define your ideal bathroom…
My ideal bathroom would be one that is integrated into the bedroom and dressing room, with a large window overlooking a park or green environ-ment, to create an area for relaxation and disconnection.
